Hundreds Tatch as there structures imploded Sunday morning


by Tim Croft
In a. staccato burst' of flash
and fury, what took years to con-
struct came tumbling to the
ground in seconds at the paper
numill site.
Hundreds lined U.S. 98 on
Sunday morning. providing some-
thing of a football tailgate/rock
concert feel while a bnght azure
sky offered a sumptuous backdrop
as demolition crews brought down
boiler structures 5. 6 and 9.
It was easily the most sinking
public evidence yet of an era's
close. an age that in another year.
when the demolition and clean-up
is complete. will be relegated to the
picklocks of historians.
"Probably most of the town will
be out here," said Frank Williams.
who has worked at the mill site the
bulk of his adult life for a succes-
sion of employers, including CCC-
Group Inc., which is demolishing
the mill.
*This is the biggest thing that's
happened here in a long time."
In direct and simple language.
Williams spoke reflecting a bitter-
sweet emotions, looking back and
forward in the same breath.
"(The mill) has a lot of memo-
nes," Williams said. "I worked on
those boilers. But it's not an end.
it's a beginning."
Sunday's show was the first in
a two-phase process of toppling
the largest structures on the mill
site.
In early January, the crews
from Control Demolition Inc.. will
be back to implode boiler structure
No. 7. easily the tallest structure
on the site. the bleach plant' and a
smaller building or two.
Su-ndav's- -implosi6ons -were -
more or less an effecuve method to
keep the dismantling of the mill on
track.
"We are putting iron on the
ground so they (CCC) can keep
working." said Doug Luozo of CDI.
Then, as a nod to the memo-
ries and iconic status of the mill in
this determined-to-move-on town.
Luozo noted the keen area interest
about Sunday's display, which had
spurred hundreds of calls to local
law enforcement for information.
"This is something neat," he
added. "This was the biggest
employer in the community."
The implosions themselves
were a precision piece of perfor-
mance art.
CCC work crews had stripped
the buildings clean, !inside and
out, of nearly everything but struc-
tural steel.


The H-beams which provided
foundation and stability were


Exposed before explosive charges
were strapped firmly in. place.


In all, less than 100 pounds of
explosives were used to buckle

Gulf Teachers and School Board Reach


Tentative Agreement on Contract Figures


by Tim Croft
Maybe one more try provided a
second wind for negotiations
between the School Board. and the
teachers.
Late Monday night the two
sides appeared to reach agreement
on salaries arid benefits, the last
major sticking point.
- A- tentative agreement, includ-
ing, a first-ever collective bargain-
ing contract, also appears on the
table for support personnel.
"If the board is willing to meet
us' in the middle, we're done," said
Tom Wazlavek, executive director
of the Gulf County Education
Association, the .union represent-
ing teachers and non-instructional
personnel.;
District staff must still crunch
some numbers and the School
Board was slated to meet in execu-
tive session to' consider the broad
points on the proposed settlement.
Once agreement is sealed at the
table,- the: teachers- and support,
personnel must must still ratify
their respective contracts.
However, it appeared Monday
that the framework for a deal was
in place, with negotiators sched-
uled to meet again late Wednesday
afternoon, after this paper goes to
press.
"I can't say anything with any
certainty," said Jerry Copeland,.
the consultant hired by the School
Board to handle labor negotia-
tions. "But I'm encouraged."
The proposal would bump the
salaries for teachers with less than
23 years experience by 3 percent
beyond the incremental increase
they have already received.
The incremental increase, or
step, is essentially a "work experi-
ence" raise.
Part of the collective bargain-
ing agreement, it is an automatic
annual bump, averaging about 1.8


- percent across all salary levels,
which teachers at the lower and
middle, rungs of seniority receive
each July.
Teachers at the top of the
salary scale, those with 23 or more
years of experience and who are no
longer in -line for annual incremen-
tal' increases, -would receive a 4
percent raise under the proposed
settlement agreement. "
:. The teachers had-already noti-
fied, the' Public 'Employees
Relations Commission that negoti-
ations had reached an impasse.'
and,.requested a mediator.
However. officials at. the Gulf
County Education, Association, the
union representing the teachers,
had been asked by Copeland to
give it one more try at the table.
"I appreciate (their) willingness
.to return to the table," Copeland
said. "We appreciate (their) willing-
ness to continue to scratch, as we
are (willing)."
Copeland said the district had
been able to find more dollars by
moving some salary to a grant
position.
The extra dollars, Copeland
offered, would be used to provide a
4 percent bump to the most senior
teachers, some 39-40, while the
rest of the district's offer,. 2:percent
above the step for all other teach-
ers, remained intact.
All raises would be retroactive
to July 1 of this year. The total cost
of the package was estimated
between $141,000 and $150,000.
Exact figures were not avail-
able.
Among the teachers gathered
for Monday's session, there was
evident support for the proposal's
aim to address the most senior
teachers.
As Judy Campbell, president
of GCEA, noted, teachers at the
top of the salary scale received no
pay raise last year while the rest' of -


the rank-and-flle 'received a step
increase.
Two years ago, when the dol-
lars offered by the districtequated,
to a 6 percent raise across the
board, the money was distributed
evenly across the salary- scale,
which translated into less than a 6.
percent raise for the most senior
teachers, Campbell added.
However, while there was sup-
port for taking care of teachers at
the top; a vocal group in the mid-
die rungs of the salary scale felt-
they could riot end negotiations
without more than had been on
the table for months.


Through petitions and fliers
those teachers had already indi-
/cated their dissatisfaction with the
board's offer.
So the union countered with a
proposal for an additional. 1 per-
cent for teachers with less than 23
years of experience.
And, to' allow the district to
accrue those additional dollars -
something in the ballpark of
$37,000 the union. agreed to
move the retroactive date forward.'
The best estimate would be
that the district would accrue the,

Commission to Help

Challenge CBRA at Cape


Commissioner Jerry Barnes
got full support from the board
when he requested that the
county join in efforts to have
CBRA (Coastal Barrier Resource
'Act) designation removed from
areas of the Cape and Indian,
Pass.
...The, county has helped the.
Gulf County Coastal Development
Association in efforts to amend
new FEMA flood map designations
within areas designated CBRA
and has assisted in raising con-
cern about CBRA designation.
They have now taken that support
one step further with their unani-
mous vote Tuesday evening.
The issue for property owners
under CBRA designation is that
they can't purchase federally-
backed flood insurance like every
other property owner in the
county can. This forces those land
owners to seek more expensive
private insurance or not purchase


flood insurance at all.
Recent news that some insur-
ance companies were no longer
writing- private flood insurance
policies in the area has further
complicated this issue.
Barnes asked the board to
provide assistance and participate'
by directly contacting area repre-
sentatives in Washington and to
,U.S. Fish and Wildlife.
Much of the growth in devel-
opment and tax base for the
county in recent years had come
from this area.
Erosion Also An Issue
Chief Administrator Don
Butler focused on another issue.

request from six adjacent property

sion to install emergency armor-

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker Down W ith Kes by Kesley Colbert
COLUMN


George Bailey Lives!


Now That We Have



The Answers We



Need Action

The question over whether Gulf County should try to return
to at-large voting has been answered again with the latest ref-
erendum appearing on Gulfs ballot.
Some time back voters overwhelmingly (over. 70%) voted
that they wanted to return to at-large voting. I don't believe that
anyone in the county had a question coming.into last week's
election as to how the majority of voters felt about at-large vot-
ing. They wish to return to' that fashion of election as opposed
to the current single-member district voting practice.
After last Tuesday's election we now know that just over a,
majority of voters had just as soon we not spend over a million
dollars to make the change. We also learned that almost a
majority of voters support returning to at-large voting even with
the price tag that accompanied the referendum-$750,000 to
$1.4 million.
After hearing the news from Washington County that they
had,madethe change back to at-large voting and it only cost
$30,000, it would seem the extremely large price tag county
commissioners placed on the ballot is likely not to be a realis-
tic cost. Existing -case law is being built through rulings such
as this that could make the change even easier. By a margin of
just under 52% of voters (2652 NO to 2462 YES) voters said,
they didn't want to spend a fortune to make this change... Now
it doesn't look like. they would have to, either, if commissioners
would just pursue the change.

WeLove Them Pigs!
It's official now. It seems that Floridians have voted: to give
pregnant pigs more constitutional rights than commercial fish-
ermen.
I dropped 'by to purchase a bag of oysters from Pat
McFarland last Saturday morning and he seemed a little per-
plexed over this new constitutional amendment.
"I'm troubled that pregnant pigs have more protection
under Florida's constitution than hard working people trying t
make their living on the water," McFarland said.,, *. -
I've seldom found Pat when he was searching for an expla-
nation for something, but he did seem to be having a problem
with this' amendment's passage. I have just about made up my
mind that folks are not reading these things. Maybe they are
laboring under the misconception that every question placed on
the ballot is supported by sound reasoning.
It was good to see that 61% of Gulf s voters turned out to
vote. That percentage is considerably above the state and
national percentages.
There was a 54 percent turnout state-wide which means
that just over 25% of the state's voters elected our state officials
this year. '
It was, also interesting to see the Republican party take con-
trol of both the Congress and Senate. The Democratic party is
licking its wounds trying to figure out how'this could have hap-
pened and where they went wrong.
I've never claimed to be a political analyst so I won't even
begin to try and figure it all out. One thing I do know for sure,
though, the Republicans have a few years where they can prove
to the world how right they are or prove to the world how wrong
they are... The ball's, in their court.


My older brother turned 60 a
couple of weeks ago. It was a mile-'
stone birthday of sorts so I went to
see him. I figured it was the least I
could do. After all, he has been
looking after me for ninety-two per
cent of those years!
He's five years older because
World War II got in there between
us. I don't actually remember our
first conversation but I'm sure he
was lecturing me on the finer
points of feeding hogs, or chopping
weeds, or watching for Daddy
whilhehe took a nap down in the
cotton field....
Leon figured every angle. And
,work wasn't high on his list of
"anglings". As a matter of fact he
was much better at "figuring" than
he was at working! He explained at
a very early age that I was the "sec-


ond in line" so I could handle the
chores that he didn't have time to
fool with. God. according to his
teachings. gave him the brains and
me the brawn.
He often allowed that I was
gosh-awful raw. but he wouldn't
quit on me-if I just did every thing
he said. When I wouldn't comply
with his every wish, he'd beat me
into submission.
You know big brothers!
They sometimes take their
responsibilities, too seriously.
'Course, when George Sexton
or B. D. Cunningham or some of
the other neighborhood toughs
wanted to pick on me after
school-I was ready to rumble.
After fighting every day with a guy
five years my senior it was a plea-
sure to face .off' with someone my
own age.
Mother made him take me,
with him to the ball field. He com-'
plained about the "little brother
tagging along"... but he took me.
And he let me play. And when you
are seven and everyone else is
twelve- you'd better ,hone your


skills or be prepared to get run
nghL over! Let me tell you. I got run
over some.... but I also made a few
plays....
He took me hunting. And fish-
ing. He taught me how to ride a
bike. He let me make gun powder
with his Gilbert chenustry set. He
explained why Ted Williams's
baseball card was so much better
than J. W. Porter's. He showed me
how to put a rock in a snowball so
it would pack more wallop. He let
me hold his 20 gauge. He was in
charge of getting us to the Park
Theatre each Saturday so we could
ride along with Hoppy, Roy and
Gene.
Leon is the guy who woke me
up each Christmas morning way
before daylight with those magic
words, "He's been here!"
He told me which teachers I
would like and the ones I should
avoid. He played. like school was
"no big deal" for him, but insisted
that I get down there every day
"with my eyes wide open and my
ears pricked." I never saw him
bring a book home or study after


class in all the years he went to
school... but he checked on me
mnhtly to make sure I was 'up to
date".
He got a job working as a life-
guard down the street at the swim-
nung pool. It wasn't long before 1
had a job down there, too.
He let me cruise the town
square with him in that '57 Ford
when other eleven year olds were
watching Gunsmoke or I Love Lucy.
Leon put the pig in the field
with a very frightened Tommy
Thompson. He rode Nicky Joe's
horse into the senior prom. He and
Jackie Burns "borrowed" the red
light off of Aaron Pinson's patrol
car. We never found out for sure

pot-bellied wood stove that sat
near the Linotype machine. I
even wore wool shirts to keep me
warm in those days.
I remember the first week of

meager sum, I had to support a

I don't cogitate on what I am
going to write about, most,
weeks. I just sit down to the key-
board and'. start writing.
Oftentimes, I don't even know
what I. am going to say in the
next paragraph, until I touch the
keys! . .
It's been that way for, 50
years and I guess it will be, that
,way for 50 more, if I keep writing
that long
There's nothing to this writ-
ing game, if you just don't let it

Right now, it's beginning to

I HAD A PART-TIME
Linotype operator for a while. He
was 80 years old and lived in
Lynn Haven. More correctly, he
stayed in Lynn Haven because
his daughter lived there.
He would drive over from
Lynn Haven three days a week,
have the machine heated and
cleaned up and be ready to oper-


ate by the time I got to work.
He used to drive to his home
in Monks Corner, North Carolina
in his sporty Ford whenever he
Took a notion.
Mr. Stokes used to always
say, "I had rather whittle me a
beak and peck in the yard with
Sthe chickens, than just do noth-
ing"
He set columns the same
way I did during his years of
publishing a weekly in Monks'
Corner.
DURING THE LAST 50
years, I have gone through at
least two generations of readers.
I have out-lived most of
those other columnists.. Only
one, Jiggs Zingarelli, has lived as
long as I have. I guess he has
lived so long because he quit
printing, his weekly newspaper
and just stuck to doing commer-
cial printing and keeping the
"meeting place" open for all his
friends and visitors.
I enjoyed tjhe friends coming

If only I had learned to drink
coffee, so I could fully join in the

lasted long enough to have spent
50 years at this endeavor if I
drank coffee!
I went to Brazil for a week,
one time. I set out to see where
coffee is grown, even if I don't
drink it.
We were on a -bus, one day,
riding around a mountain. On
this trip, we saw one coffee tree .
. they told mel I thought Brazil
would be covered in coffee trees!
I saw a lot of unusual things,
during my -50 years of writing
this column.
I saw everything from a 10-
foot rattler [dead], to a head of
cabbage which weighed 20
pounds, to a bear killed by Doc
Whitfield!


Somehow, I knew that wasn't
going to work.
Add to that the fact I 'was
only 26 years of age, so you can

writing in; I still don't. In those
early days, I just sat with a hot

I used to have some other'

Washington County News, Jiggs
Zingarelli of the Franklin Press

All of these guys wrote

There was no secret to it. It

Bay Medical Center Planning Expansion to Area


by Tim Croft
So often health care in the
Gulf County/Mexico Beach,
hinges on logistics.
'Where is quality care
accessible? What's the travel
time?
Bay Medical Center and
providers local and beyond are
proposing to eliminate logistics
from the health care equation.
With an ambitious plan
unveiled this, week, BMC has
committed to partner with
providers in a phased approach
that will ultimately establish a
20,000 square foot medical
complex, providing a host of


Contract
'additional 1 percent dollars by
making the deal for all teachers
retroactive-to sometime around the
first-to-middle of October.
The district's contribution to
health insurance would continue
at $225 per month, though the
district is bidding out the insur-
ance package with an eye toward
possibly joining .the state employ-
ees health plan in the future.
"At this point we're encour-
aged that we found a solution,"
Wazlavek said. "I appreciate the
board's willingness to come back to
the table and work with us ... and
find a compromise that is a win-
win for everybody."
As for the non-instructional
employees, negotiators. have
worked through the language on
the first collective bargaining con-
tract between the .district and its
support employees.
"We've got 99 percent of it'
done," Wazlavek said. "We have to
go back and clean up some lan-


urgent care services, in Port St.
Joe.
Many details in the proposal,
which will likely take 12-24
months to transform vision into
reality, have still to be ironed out,
but a broad outline has been
sketched.
It is a product of more than a
year of discussions between BMC,
elected officials in Gulf County
and Mexico Beach, the Gulf
County Economic Development
Council and local and national
health care providers.
Phase I would have BMC
bringing services to the Integras
Wellness and Therapy campus in
Beacon Hill sometime in the first

guage, but we are there."
The bargaining on salaries and
benefits, which took the negotiat-
ing session into the wee hours of
Tuesday morning, echoed that for
the teachers.
Copeland offered 4 percent for
the most senior non-instructional
employees and 2 percent for all
others.
The union countered' with 4
percent for the most senior
employees and 3 percent for all
others.
Health insurance contribu-
tions would mirror that for the
teachers..
Both sides appeared to agree
on the counter-proposal; with the
'district still crunching numbers
before signing off on the deal.
The total .cost of the pay and
benefits package for support per-
sonnel is estimated between
$80,00.0-$90,000. Precise figures
were not available.

quarter of next year.
The second phase, to take
place over the next two years,
according to BMC president and
CEO Steve Johnson, would see
BMC as a prime player in a new
medical complex in Port St. Joe,
offering "a wide range of
diagnostics, additional specialists,
rehbab and dialysis."
The site of the new complex
has yet to be determined.
"We have some idea where we
want to be, but we have to talk to
the parties," said Bill Williams,

CEO of Integras and chairman of
the county, Economic Develop-
ment Council. "But we do know
we want to be in Gull' County".

would also have ready access.

already in place for each phase of
Sthe process.. '
Southern Orthopedics, a

provide orthopedic care when.
BMC comes to Integras at Beacorn''
Hill.
And DaVita, the California-"
based company which operates,,


several dialysis clinics in the
region, including Panama City,
will be the first tenant of the new
complex in Port;St. Joe.
DaVita had tentatively agreed
to operate a dialysis clinic out of
the old county Health Department
building sometime after the first
of the year.
However, the company, which
had a representative in town a
couple of weeks ago to evaluate
the BMC inmuative, will now wait
for the opening of the new
complex.
"They want to be where the
doctors are," Williams said. "They
will be the first tenant.
"Tt's a short run deficit,
because they would have been in
early next year. But in, the long
term it makes their clinic more
viable."
Once in place, the proposed
medical complex would offer a
variety of urgentt care" services,
or those dealing with norii life-
threatening" medical needs.
That could run the gamut
from orthopedics to OB/GYN, X-
ray and diagnostics. lab work and


"Waint ft inaningthatis

MRI.
"We might have multiple
providers providing a variety of
services under one roof," Williams
said.
For' BMC, which recently
completed a $38 million
expansion and enhancement of its
facility, the proposal is a logical
extension to its mission of
providing medical care to a seven-
county region.
"Health care is a community-
based need," said Daniel Morgan,,
chief financial officer at BMC. "We
wanted to find partners to provide
high-quality services in the
community.
"It's matching the needs of the
community to the available
resources. One of the ways you do
that is to work with local
providers and local physicians to
improve e access to quality health
care."

And while the current
demographics of the area
mandate that BMC take
measured strides, there is little
doubt that coming development


and growth are significant
variables for the hospital.
"We view it that basically we
want to have a long-term
relationship with the community,"
Morgan said, noting that the best
way'to do that is to grow with the
community. "We see this as a
long-term commitment. It needs
to work for everybody. We see it as
a true win-win for everybody."
For local residents, the vision,
once it's a bricks-and-mortar
reality, will eliminate logistics
from. the equation of receiving
quality health care. ,
"This addresses accessibility
and' a higher level of care,"
Williams said. "Folks won't have
to travel to get high-quality health
care.
"The' commitment Bay
Medical Center has made to the
community is enormous."
As part of the proposal, the
EDC is working on a economic
package of incentives and
stimulus to help jump start a.
project that figures to pump jobs
and payroll into the local'
economy.

Gulf Remembers ...


by Tim Croft
Veteran's Day, as we know it,
began as something of a celebra-
tion honoring the small but impor-
tant scribblings that ended the
first War to End All Wars.
Known as Armistice Day in the
1920s, it honored the literally 11th
hour on the 11th day of the 11th
month close to an international
calamity, World War I.
By 1954, after the country had
suffered through one more War to
End All Wars, and a brutal conflict
in Korea, Armistice Day was trans-
formed to Veteran's Day, a chance
to pay tribute to patriotic heroism.
Now, as the country wages an
unconventional and unprecedent-"
ed war on terrorism, the nation
paused Monday to, honor those
who took up, as Ret. Major Frank
Wayne Pate (USAF) said at Port St.
Joe High School, ."the cause of
freedom and the promise of peace."
It would be hard to imagine'
more reverential and emotional
tribute than that offered around
the county, from a Wewahitchka


Baptist Church to Port St. Joe
High School to VFW Post 10069 in
Highland View.
The commemorating began
festively on Saturday at the VFW
* 10069, with hot dogs, hamburgers
and children's games, and took a
more solemn tone in ceremonies
Sunday and Monday.
Folks sang songs of freedom,
The National Anthem, Battle Hymn
of the Republic and America the
Beautiful.
They read words of war and
country, the stunningly moving
"Flanders Field" or the succinctly*
stirring Gettysburg Address.
They remembered Sept. 11,
2001, which, as Pate said, "awak-
ened in America a deep sense of
patriotism and national pride."
And with solemn dignity,
accompanied by the haunting
sound of the tolling bell, they read
the names of Gulf County's fallen.
"It's important that we gather
here today in honor of the soldiers
from Gulf County," Pate said, to
remember the blessings found in


the "rough men and women" who
defend our lives.
That list of the deceased
extended from World War II Gulf
County dates to 1925; veterans
from the area killed in World War I
were residents of Calhoun County
- to Christopher Blaschum, who
lost his life earlier this year in the.
War on Terrorism.
All u.Le ceremony was to
ensure, as Pate put it, that "we will
never forget" the men and women
of uniform.
. Over 227 years and a dozen or
so conflicts, tens of millions have
served, millions have died on and
off the battlefield and 1.5 million
have been non-fatally wounded.
There are today 25 million liv-
ing veterans.
"We honor and cherish our
veterans," said Col. Jeff Snyder,
Maintenance Group Commander
at Tyndall AFB, from the County
Courthouse steps. "They answered
the nation's call. We offer solemn
tribute to bur ,,fallen comrades,
wherever they might rest."


Gulf County veterans stand to be recognized during stirring cer-
emonies honoring Veteran's Day at Port St. Joe High School. Each
veteran was given a "God Bless America" flag pin by a student.

Elementary School singers,

Rural Fire Departments Receive $20,000
Northwest Florida Improvement Foundation Recognizes Need-


by Tim Croft
Chiefs Bob Britt and Bill Davis
searched a bit for the proper words
to express' their gratitude for a
donation last week from the
Northwest Florida Improvement
Foundation.
So, maybe a little arithmetic
will suffice.
Last week the NWFIF gave
$20,000 each to Britt's Howard
Creek Volunteer Fire Department
and Davis' Dalkeith Volunteer Fire.
Department.
Those gifts represented rough-
ly five times what those fire depart-.
ments receive each year for opera-
tions.
"We have one of the largest
response areas in the county."
Davis said, noting his depart-
ment's location almost equidistant
from. Wewahitchka and Port St.
Joe and its proximity and ability to'
assist throughout the county.
"But we have less than 84,000
each 'year to operate this fire
department. (The donation) is very
important."
The departments have similar
missions for the money.
In Dalkeith, the dollars will go
toward adding on to the building,,
to provide room for another truck
bay and conversion of some exist-
ing space into a meeting area.
Britt said the Howard Creek
department would add building
space and hopefully, lease a fast-
response tactical brush vehicle.
Given tight budgets and more
pressing priorities, i.e. equipment
upgrades and maintenance. the
dollars for such projects, are
scarce.
'"This is very important," said
Tripp Barrier, president of the
Dalkeith lire department.. "The
department has been limited in
funds tor several years. We pur-
chased a newv truck last year and it.
crunched our budget."
And while the projects might
not fit seamlessly within th'e
NWFIF's vision much of the
foundation's work is in'the areas of


education and health care they
were still ones the foundation
could freely embrace.
"Sometimes these areas, get
lost in the discussions," said Pam
Selton, executive, director of the
NWFIF. -
Selton was referring to the
geographical areas of Dalkeith and
Howard Creek, but she could just
as easily been speaking of the fire
departments. .
Remarking on the importance
of protecting valuable fire equip-
ment, she marveled at. the dedica-
tion and bravery, of the men and
women 15 full tme in Dalkeith, .
18 (75 percent senior citizens) in,
Howard Creek who serve these
areas. .
"They have some real needs,"
Selton said. "We are not a huge

amounts, but this is something we
can do. This ,isa role we can take
to fill some gaps where they exist." '
Those needs were brought to
the foundation by St. Joe
Timberland president Clay
Smallwood and County
SCo irnissioner Carmen, McLemore,
whose Distnrict 1 includes Dalkeith'
and Howard Creek.
"This is a step forward for Gulf.
County," McLemore said. "We're
mo\in, forward and with growth
and development we need to make
sure that our fire departments are
adequately prepared to respond;."
The NWFIF receives funding
from sources established by The,
St. Joe Co.
It is dedicated to improving the
quality of life in Northwest Flornda
through programs that improve
education, health care, parks and
recreation, arts and culture and
community spirit.
"In this rural county; it is
important that NWFIF and St. Joe
have made fire protection an early
prionty," said John Hendry, Arvida
project general manager for Gulf
County.
Noting the significance of
addressing fire protection needs
even before the .formal start of the
WindMark DRI process, 'Hendry
added, "While soon- we will be
. starting a broad review of- the'
county's needs, there is clear con-
sensus on this one."

It seems only logical that once
an idea takes root at the Garden
Club of Port St. Joe it would grow
and blossom.
That's exactly what happened
with last year's Community
Celebration of Christmas at the
Gardens.
Having outgrown the Garden
Club last year, the event has
moved to the Centennial Building,
where it will be held 1-4 p.m.
..Sattrday.
Admission is $10, which'
,provides entrance, refreshments,
to sate any appetite and an

Same (Earl Groh).


opportunity to win a wealth of
door prizes.
"We probably have the best
door prizes," said Zebe Schmitt of
the Garden Club. "The merchants
have been (great)."
The centerpiece of the event is
a presentation pn different ways
and techniques to decorate for
Christmas.'
The show, led by Terry
Gingerich, who brought the idea'
of the celebration to Schmitt, is,
according to Schmitt, entertaining
and informative.


"It was quite a show," Schmitt
said. "It was just marvelous. You
can learn new and different ways
to decorate for Christmas. It was
three hours of the neatest, most
entertaining shows.
"We hope to kickoff Christmas
and get people enthusiastic about
Christmas and about going
downtown and shopping.",
Tickets are still available from
any Garden Club member or at
Heart's Desire.
They will also be on sale at
the door on the day of the show.

Gulf School Board Approves Additional Funding For PSJH


and funding Wewa Middle School Walkway


by Tim Croft
With transition looming in a
week or so, the Gulf County School
Board dealt with a relatively light,
and non-controversial, agenda
during its regular monthly meeting
last week.
The board will re-organize on
Nov. 19 as Sharon Gaskin is sworn
in as the District 2 representative,
replacing Dr. Mary Pridgeon, who
retired after two terms.
A new chairperson and vice-
chairperson will also be deter-
mined during that meeting. It
would seem likely that current
vice-chair, Billy Qtiinn Jr., will
become the first African-American
to serve as chairman of the Gulf
County School Board.
Among the newsworthy items
on the agenda spurred one of the
more collegial exchanges in recent


months between Superintendent.
of Schools Jerry Kelley and Judy
Campbell, president of the Gulf
County Education Association
union.
Campbell told the board that
the union, at the district's request,
would return to the negotiating
table at least one more time to try
to mold a deal on teacher salaries
and benefits, the primary sticking
point in the protracted current
bargaining.
Campbell carried a letter stat-
ing that the union had withdrawn
its letter of notification of impasse
and request for mediation.
The sides scheduled a return
to the negotiating table for this
week, allowing one more' opportu-
nity for the sides to reach agree-
ment and avoid protracting the


hearings before a mediator or spe-
cial master.
Superintendent Jerry Kelley,
in turn, thanked Campbell for the
union's decision and pledged to
work toward forging a more pro-
ductive working relationship with
the union.
(See related article in this
week's paper.)
In other business taken uip
during its regular monthly meet-
ing, the Board:
Approved several construc-
tion contracts and change. orders.
Two contracts pertained to the
construction of covered walkways
at Wewahitchka Middle Schools. ,
Dothan Awning will do the
work on the walkway coverings at
a cost of $103,500. while Clayton
Concrete of' Port St. Joe will do the


concrete walkway work at a cost of
$27,245.
Kelley said thorough inspec-
tion of a portion of the current
walkway revealed additional work
,would be necessary that is outside
the scope of the original bid won
by Clayton.
That will -mean a $17,000'
change order in the near future.
Additionally, the board
approved an additional contract
and change order with Bel-Mac
Roofing for the re-roofing at Port
St. Joe High School.
One, for $80,036, is to do
some rehab of the steel I-beams
and bulb tees under the roof,
which has from the beginning been
deemed necessary by the architect
to provide a proper foundation for


the new roof surface.
The second contract change,
for $22,300, is to extend the re-
roofing to include the dome over
the media center.
Neither of the domes on the
high school roof had been included
in the original contract.
Approved the makeup of
each school's School Advisory
Council for the current school
year.
Permitted Wewahitchka High
SSchool baseball coach Justin
Smith to move forward with
improvements and additions to the
home team dugout at the baseball
field.'
Smith has lined up donations
of materials and labor so that the
improvements will not cost the dis-
trict a dime.


Discussed at some length the
concerns of Quinn regarding, the
recruitment of teachers to the dis-
trict, particular minority teach-.
ers. ,
SNoting the significant number.
of teachers in the DROP retire-
ment program, Quinn expressed
the need for the district to be nmiore
aggressive in recruiting and keep-
ing new teachers,, particularly
minority teachers.
Quinn said he would begin
talking with black colleges ardind
the region to see if there were pro-'
grams the district could tap into to ,
replenish the ranks of teachers. -"
Kelley, while ;noting some qo
the obstacles the district faces in
attracting new talent, said, "It's
going to take some hard work, but'.
we'll try." .

Gators Season Comes to End


The Wewahitchka Gators
capped off their 2002 football sea-
son Friday night with a 35-0 loss
to the Freeport Bulldogs. The
Gators finished with a 3-7 record.
The Gators had a punt
blocked at the end of their open-
ing drive of the game, setting up
the Bulldogs' first score of the
night.
Freeport capped off the six
play drive with a 26 yard field goal
to take a 3-0 lead early in the first
quarter.
Freeport extended its lead to
9-0 on the first play of their ensu-
ing possession, scoring on a 64--
yard touchdown run.
S The Bulldogs threatened to
score on their next series. On
fourth and six, Freeport faked a
24-yard field goal. Wewahitchka's
Will Strange came up with a. big,


play in the end zone, breaking up
the pass attempt.
Three plays later, Freeport
intercepted a pass from senior
quarterback John Curtis Gates,
who was getting his first start of
the season, and returned it 30
yards for a touchdown. The
Bulldogs missed their second
extra point try of the night, but
took a 15-0 lead with 10:34
remaining in the first half.
After a Gator punt, Freeport
extended their lead to 22-0 with
4:45 left in the half. The Bulldogs
capped off a seven-play, 59 yard
scoring drive with a 13-yard
touchdown run on a quarterback
keeper, then added the extra
point.
The Bulldogs added two more
touchdowns in the second half, an


18 yard touchdown midway
through the third quarter, and. a
five yard touchdown run in the
fourth quarter.
"Freeport was a good football
team," said head coach Ken
Cohen. "It was Senior Night, and
we wanted to go out there and
have fun. All the seniors got a
chance to touch the ball, whether
running, catching or throwing it.
We wanted to end on a happy.
note, but Freeport was a tough,
team."

Jaguars Superbowl
On Tuesday, November 5th eame with ju
the Port Stt Joe Jaguars traveled left in the h
to Apalachicola for a playoff game tackle for
with the Wewa Warriors. A win for football and a
either team would have put them clock almost
in the Super Bowl. It became
,obvious from the start that the
undefeated Jaguars were not
going to let this one get away.
They had beaten Wewa twice
already .this season and were
determined to do it one more time.
The game started with the
Jaguars in possession of the ball
onr their own 40-yard line. Ten .
plays and 5 1/2 minutes later
they were in the end zone. The ..'.
drive featured a 13-yard run by
Nathan, Tarantino that was
negated by a 15-yard personal
foul penalty. Chris Cochran got
back) the penalty yardage and
more when he burst off left tackle,
then cut back for a 30-yard gain .. ..
before he could be brought down.

on 10 carries in the game, went' W ,

st over two minutes
all. Pryor went off

te up big parts of the
every time they got


outstanding blocking by Cochran,
Shane Knox and Steve Denton.
The second half started off
with more of the same. The
Jaguars exploded for another TD
when Tarantino pitched out to
Pryor who carried the mail 49
yards into the end zone. Raheen
Clemons went over the left side for
the conversion. Despite most of
the starters being out of the game,
the, Jags threatened one more
time when Roman Quinn went 19
yards around left end. He was
stopped when the last Wewa
defender just managed to trip him
up.
The Warriors are a passing
team but their game plan had no
success against ,.the Jaguar
defense. Clemons intercepted one
of the Wewa passes. Time after
time they put the ball in the air
only to have it knocked down by
Jag defenders. The Jaguar line
hurried the passers so much that
they couldn't get off an accurate
throw. The only Wewa first down
of the whole game came on a
penalty. To a great extent, thel
success of the defense was great
because the offense held the ball
so long. They played ball control
the ball.

Wewa Soccer Club
Players of the Week
The players of the week for
Phil's Grill team were Haley
Slentz, Micah Lister, and Shelby
Wood.
Haley played a great game
this past Saturday. Only five
players showed up for the game
and Haley hustled the whole time,.
She has shown tremendous
ability to play ^as a team player
and has also been a great all-
around player playing in all.
positions. Thanks for all the hard
work,,Haleyl
Micah has really shown his
ability on the soccer field this
.year. He is a great mid-fielder and
knows how to pass the ball to his
teammates. Keep up the good
work, Micah! .
Shelby has shown that she is
not afraid of anything on the
soccer field. She will run right up
and take the ball away from the
other team no matter what the
size of the other person. She is a
very aggressive player and has
comtre through for her team many
times. Keep on hustling. Shelby!
The Taunton Trusses under


10 team has been actively
developing their soccer skills. As
they approach the end of their
season they have scored another
goal at the hands, or should they
say feet, of J.D. Strickland.
On the end of the field Jay
Bryan excelled, in her ability to
stop the opponent's penalty shots.
As a goalkeeper she is in the right
place, almost all the time, to shut
the offensive forward and get the
,ball moving back down the field.
Although they only have one
win, their players have stuck with
each other ,and displayed great
sportsmanship.

issues, acquired some 1.25 million
acres of environmentally sensitive
and valuable lands.
And the, buffer preserve has
been a high priority, due, accord-
ing to a DEP report, to its "natural
communities, in very good to
' excellent condition, which include
mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods,
scrub, baygail, shell mounds, salt-
marsh and beach dune."
., Ogles, in something of an
understatement, said, "It's a pretty
well-thought of project statewide."
The dune-swale-ridge topogra-
phy of the land is the result of the
Weathering, over hundreds of mil-
lions of years, of the Appalachians,
which were once on par with the
Himalayas as far as width and
breadth, Ogles said.
As this erosion took place,
granite became quartz, which is
found in abundance on area
beaches.
Another result was changes in
sea levels. At one time,' cons ago,
the coastline was. in Georgia. As
recently as 12,000 years ago, the
coastline was 40 miles off the cur-
rent shoreline, Ogles said.
; Those geological alterations
have produced great changes in
the landscape and soil content. ,
S."That' topography and .soil
Types is what rare plants -like,"*
Ogles said. "The preserve 'is home
i to some of the rarest plants in the
world." .
: According to a DEP report, the
buffer is home to three very rare
and endemic species not protected
on public lands.
The, bay also supports "a
diverse and healthy marine
S.cosystem 'of statewide signifi-
cance and. is an important nursery
ground for many recreational and
commercially Valuable, species.",
Those rare plants species
include the Chapman's rhododen-
dron, which was -found, its pink
petals blooming, deep in the scrub
See Buffer Preserve on page 6B


Chapman's rhododendron, captured in pinkish bloom at the
buffer preserve by a DEP botanist, is one of several rare species of;
plants found at the buffer preserve that make it as described by the
DEP, "of great botanical significance."

Answers to Real Estate questions

SELLING YOUR HOME IN THE WINTER
By: Scott Burkett
In many parts of the country, selling a home during the winter months can be a challenge.
Dreary, cold weather and the end-of-the-year holidays can keep buyers away and heighten fears
of your home staying on the market longer than expected. However, there are a few things you
can do to.enhance "curb appeal." And when that happens, buyers will take notice.
For example, if your home has been on the market for more than six months, its probably
time to change the sales approach. There, are several factors that could be reviewed with your
real estate agent to determine improvements.that can be made. Ask for a reassessment of the
sales price; it may be too high for the current market. Also, ask the agent for a new or updated
marketing plan and ac'k for a spec.f-c e Marketing your home ge.:., beord a le- ads in the newspaper and a listing on "he Multiple
-Listing Service (MLS); a good agent will do more to get your home sold. If your current agent
doesn't respond to your satisfaction; you should contact the real estate broker (the ownerof the
office) and ask for a different sales agent or, if you're no longer under any contractual oblig-
ation to the frm n mightL bKe me' to change real estate offices entirely.
When beingg the akir.g price throLgh a comparat.ie marketing analysis compare similar,
homes sold ir. ihe Mnie, rnonth: Many.'.-.e-rs er i he.r asking price too high because of com
parisons.with sale5 pr;.:ei during peak seasons. Always try tocompare like properties sold at the
same time of year. '
Once you've settled Pr. or, o.k,nc pr..:e. its time to spruce up .he interior,and eiertobr of
your home Many real etate agent: recommend opening as many curtains as possible to add
I.ght and .:olor to. rooms. Also, it's suggested that you keep spring and summer pictures of your
home out on tables and ;n clear view. Photos of your front yard flowers or ihe backward shade
tree in full summer :Icc.m .:ar, help s..,ng man', buyer, ;r, fa.or of a purchase.,
Staying on top of .-.,nier marrintenanrce and .:horEs is another sure-fire way of adding value
to your home. A neatly shoveled driveway and cleared walkway can add a nice touch. Make
sure the furnace .in good .'ork-.,'g c.rcndion and ihai the room temperature is kept at a com-

The Wewahitchka Volunteer Fire Department visited Wewahitch-
ka Elementary School during Fire Prevention Week.

U di1 'dr~."'6 a.~1,. hill'N


Gin. momm


p r:


by Lori Price
The history of Fire Prevention'
Week has its roots in the Great'
Chicago Fire, which began on.
October 8 but continued into and'
did most damage on October 9,
1871. In just 27 hours, this tragic
conflagration killed more than
250 'people, left 100,000
homeless, destroyed more than
17,400 structures and burned
more than 2,000 acres. While the,
origin of the fire has never been'
determined, there has been, much
speculation over how it began.
According to popular legend, the
fire .'broke out after a, cow-
'belonging to Mrs. Catherine,
O'Leary-kicked over a ,lamp,,
. settri first the barn, then the'
whole city on fire.
Those who survived, the
Chicago fire. never forgot what
they'd been through: the blaze
produced countless" tales of
bravery and heroism. But the fire'
also changed the w.ay that
Firefighters and, public officials
thought about fire safety. On the
40th anniversary of the great
Chicago Fire, the Fire Marshals'
Association of North America (now
known as the International Fire
.Marshal's Associationl. the oldest
membership section of the
National Fire Protection Associ-.
ation (NFPA), decided that the
40th anniversary :of 'the Great
Chicaeo Fire .should be observed
not with festiities, but in a way
that would keep the public
informed about the importance of
fire prevention.
In 1920, President Woodrow'
Wilson issued the first National


Q~R~s


..


Fire Prevention Day proclamation,'
and since 1922,. National Fire
Prevention Week has been
observed the second week of'
October. If addition, the President
of the United States has signed a
proclamration' pronouncing a
national observance during that.,
week ever' year since 1925. ''
NFPA has officially sponsored
Fire Prevention Week since the-.
observance was first established.,
That's' 80 years of raising 'public'
awareness'-about the dangers of
fire and howtto prevent it.
Members of the Wewahitchka'
Volu nteer :Fire Department visited
WES during Fire, Prevention Week.
They treated our Pre-K and
Kindergarten students to a 'ttour
of the lire truck. gave, them
firefighter hats. and impressed
upon them the need for fire safety';
awareness. We would -like to.-'
thank our dedicated fire depart-
ment for their support of our
educational efforts and for
creating special schoolday
memones.

Buffer -From PgB
last week'.
But the benefits of the pre-
serve are enormous, in aspects
both tangible and intangible,
The most important being as
a, well, buffer, between pristine
lands and waters and encroaching
development.
"People benefit whether they
realize it or not," Ogles said. "Just
about any impact you can think of
that development brings to Florida
(is prevented)."
Homeowners along the St.
Joseph Bay Country Club are par-
ticular winners, with their acreage
completely surrounded by pre-.
served lands..
"I don't know how it could get
much better," Ogles said.
The Treasure Shores acquisi-
tion was. the largest since the first
lands foray the buffer preserve. were
secured in 1996.
"It's a pretty recent project,"
Ogles said. "We look forward to it
growing into a unique preservation
area to Florida."
The Treasure Bay Lodge. is
being renovated, transformed from
a gathering spot for hunters into a
center for environmental-based
education.
Ogles said interpretive and
environmental education courses,
and lectures would be hosted in
the lodge, which will also be used
at some point as a training center'
for archeologists and/or geolo-
gists.
"It's evolving into a useful
facility," Ogles said.
Public access, Ogles said. is
encouraged, with, the buffer pre-
serve 'offering hiking, fishing.
canoeing and swimming opportu-
nities once acquisition is complete
and management directives put in
S place. : "
ae Several hiking trails already
dissect the property.
"We want to provide' as much
public access as possible without
having degradation," Ogles said:
"The more people come out and
enjoy it the easier it is to promote
acquisition of the land and to do
things 'we need to do to maintain
these rare habitats."
Toward that end, a citizen's
committee, the Fnends of St. Joe
Bay Preserve Inc., is being formed.
Incorporating paperwork for the
S501(c)(3), non-profit is currently
being drafted for, application and
filing.
"It's a fledgling organization,"
Ogles said, adding that the group
will serve as an oversight and pro-
motional body for the buffer pre-
serve.
